See it HERE. Finally got around to doing this. Like aaalways, it will forever be a work in progress. Hopefully it’s sufficiently different from the main release, I haven’t checked that script yet.
I tried to give lots of the bosses certain speaking patterns, like Grizzly speaks deliberately and fully because I see him, despite his appearance, as an honourable almost samurai-esque dude.
X is job focused and overall polite.
Zero is straight forward and has a bit of a mouth.
Dinorex is a brute who can be strangely poetic.
Rosered is a petty punk.
Dynamo is a goofball and talks like one.
Hopefully it’s decent!
I mean the title in the nicest way possible, I swear!
I bought the Mercenaries Saga Chronicles collection off the Switch eShop which includes all three titles in this series I had never heard of prior. Scouring the internet, there were results for 2 and 3 but seemingly nothing for 1 outside of Japanese sites. Seems like 1 gets the least love, so I’ma give it some time today.
R?MJ : The Mystery Hospital is one of the many games to come out of Japan – or rather, stay in Japan – during the rise of the PS1 and 3D graphics that tried to be a “cinematic experience”, blurring the lines between movies and games. While games these days still try to do that for some reason, it was rampant in the PS1 area with lots of hallway walking simulators with ridiculously bad CGI cutscenes and minimalist gameplay (Vampire Detective, Maria, many glorified visual novels, etc, are some derp examples). What resulted were a bunch of games nobody remembers, despite their efforts to be amazing. In reality, I think these were popular because they were easy and cheap to make – no real gameplay engine necessary! Get your brother-in-law Ricky to do the cutscenes, he likes computers right?
R?MJ (what a catchy acronym, but pronounced just “MJ”) is one of the kings of derp in this genre. There may be “worse” games technically speaking, but this one is so absolutely silly and stupid it has become one of my most beloved of the “kusoge” niche. It has been some time since I played it, but hopefully the memories burned into my psyche will help guide me along.
After letting my Switch chill all by its lonesome for far too long (I love the thing, but PS4 games always had a way of drawin me away), I’ve recently begun downloading all sorts of shiz that interests me to see what sticks, because one thing I love about the Switch is it’s all about dem games.
One that immediately caught my eye was Mighty Gunvolt Burst, the whacky crossover between Inticreates’ Armed Blue Gunvolt series and Inafune’s baby Mighty No 9. The Gunvolt games are solid as hell, reminiscent of the Rockman Zero games that Inticreates previously did for Capcom. Mighty No. 9 was the promised return to Rockman roots that local madman and self-titled father of the universe Inafune promised to fans worldwide, and, well, pretty much everyone knows how that turned out. Mighty No. 9 wasn’t horrible by any stretch, but it was definitely a big letdown, especially in the visuals and charm department. Wily ol’ Inafune, up to his tricks again!
But for Mighty Gunvolt Burst, the most tl;dr review I could give it is: this is the game Mighty No. 9 should have been, and with a tighter budget to boot.
Hello peeps, here is the Rockman World 5 JPN script + translation as per request. I dunno if there’s really much difference between this and the localization, but if you were ever curious about dat J script, here ya go.
Also it was fun to do a leisurely translation.

Ryu ga Gotoku / Yakuza 6 is a dope game, there is no doubts about it. I don’t know if it’s even possible for this series not to bring the hype. What’s more, is that every game in the series continues to improve on the formula making each new game even better than the last, which is quite impressive and makes me dunk my soul to the devs every time a new one is announced. Zero turned out to be insane, so naturally, I was ready to party and get a taste of life as a god once the 6th game was announced and hearing that it was made purely for the PS4. Full power Kiryu preaching that violence isn’t the answer while also stomping everyone’s faces in?! Count me in!
Unfortunately, part 6 breaks the pattern – it is not better than Zero.
First of my Yakuza 6 lyrics! Another game that is coming to the West; cool!
Find it here. Have karaoke ver., will upload Full Spec. ver or whatever when it gets uploaded.
Despite the cheery nature of the video and song, it’s kinda depressing.
